FULL – Making Screendance: Exploring with HD Cameras
10:00AM to 4:30PM
Explore choreographic possibilities and limitations with professional cameras!
Offered in French only
Most current screendance productions use semi-professional or professional HD cameras that render excellent image definition and very precise textures.
With different types of HD cameras, participants can experiment with how these tools impact their choreography and what each machine offers. We will work with focus, depth of field, frame composition and dimension.
